Guardian Review

The novel is full of delights, with characters who are both believable and heroic. Even Pom-Pom, the dog, who plays such an important part in the denouement, is a fully-rounded character, while the aunts are of Wodehouse standard. The language is neither too formal nor too chatty but perfectly poised between the two, and the moral - that friendship can overcome almost every difficulty - is a good one. ADELE GERAS
